My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have strived to create a practice environment that is unhurried, friendly and comfortable where my patients feel welcome and never rushed. My practice style has always been to try to provide comprehensive medical care to my patients by listening to all of their concerns while demonstrating compassion and patience. Ten years ago, the US healthcare system was declared "broken" and it has not improved. Fixes that are needed have not materialized. Premiums are increasing and the hassles for both patients and physicians keep rising. We all know how medicine should be. I invite you to see how medicine can be and is being practiced everyday at my office.

MIke and my relationship began back in 1995 when we both worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City. Mike has been the trusted physician and friend of my family ever since. He cared for June and Forrest (my parents), continues to care for Pam and myself, my brother Ken (whom would not be with us today if it weren’t for Mike), Kristen (who might just be Mike’s most complex patient), and… See more

from John in MO February 29, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Dr Monaco is a very genuine and caring Dr. He always gets back to me if I have a question or a request. Wish more of our medical profession would emulate the type of Doc he is.

from Al in KS February 28, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

When I was fighting an infection, you came in the office to give me a shot on Saturday and Sunday. You could have required a nurse to do it or you could have sent me somewhere else, but you did it yourself. You even offered to come to my house. You truly went the extra mile!

from Tanda in KS March 17, 2018 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Dr. Michael Monaco is the best doctor ever! I always look forward to my annual physical where he gives me details about my health and great advice about how to be as healthy as possible. I trust him completely with my health!

Dr. Monaco has been my physician since 2012. Over the years he has been there for me, not only for my annual head-to-toe and all parts inside and outside exam, but for all of the acute injuries and illnesses that have inevitably arisen during each of those years. Thanks to my physician-patient partnership with Dr. Monaco, I enjoy the ongoing confidence that I am being a good steward of my God-… See more

from Louise in KS March 12, 2018 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

I am an 8 year Cancer survivor. I am alive because Dr. Michael Monaco is my doctor and did not take a lets keep an eye on it approach but acted instead based on a small elevation in one lab test. We are convinced he made the difference in my diagnosis and pointed me to the appropriate Oncologist for treatment. You see without the test and the expertise of Dr. Monaco this would not be a… See more

from Mary in KS March 1, 2018 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Why I stay with Dr. Monaco and MDVIP:
I just heard a story today about a person 10 years younger than me who just suffered from a life changing stroke. His family said the man didn't know he had diabetes, and he wasnt taking his meds and being tested regularly for high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
So those unfortunate neglected areas of a 56 year old mans health and… See more

from John in MO February 28, 2018 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Dr. Monaco is an extremely compassionate and caring doctor. What I love about Dr M is if he tells you something he acts on it and makes it happen very quickly. I had a situation with my son and we were under a timeframe and Dr M helped us solve our problem with 48 hrs. He is a really exceptional Doctor.
